  1. Everything on my desktop becomes smaller


    I connect my laptop to an external monitor, so I chose the option to keep my laptop running even if I close the lid of the laptop. The problem is that whenever I close the lid of my laptop, every single thing becomes smaller, google chrome, word, my taskbar, everything. This also happens when I chose different projection settings other than "Duplicate". Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop
